Our natural light spectrum on Earth creates the colors we come to expect to see with our eyes. I like to invert my photos to better appreciate how light creates layers within each photograph. Seeing the unexpected colors forces my eyes to focus on the subtle variations of color shades that make up each photograph.
In the 1980’s I made a multi-color sequin jacket to wear to a music gala. When I stepped out of the car in the parking lot it appear to be made of only gold sequins because the halogen lights carried only the yellow spectrum. As I entered the Hotel the jacket sprung to life in blue, red, gold, green, pink, silver etc. This event made me rethink how each form of light we use in photography changes how we see our subject.
This LED site has some great information about the effects of light sources. http://www.fosilum.si/en/why-led-lights/color-rendering-index-cri/
Beautiful – what a cool perspective on colour…
Our #photo101 is encourage me to share not only photographs but thoughts about photography too.
Absolutely fascinating and beautiful – and your description of the jacket is amazing!
Light can be friend or foe 🙂 Understanding is the key to making friends.
